I know these warning are important, but, I don't know anyone who pays any attention to them nor changes plans because of them.

I rarely check before I go, but I've changed my plans when I've heard about them sometimes. Russian beach roulette. .

Risk is low. But if you have open wounds or suppressed immune system, you could get pretty sick. It's also becoming drug resistant. I had an enterococcus based UTI once. It wasn't pleasant.
